Three Roses, Oil, 18 x 36 , © St Germain

I love roses and  my six words for Saturday: I love painting whatever I see
or whatever comes to mind





For Texture Twist – The Vineyard below modified





THE GOOD: our get together’s with the whole family
(even if it’s not at my house, which looks a lot more casual) not often enough, since Ty on the couch studies in the Hague (this only part of the family)




We have a Z (for Alphabe) in our family:  Her name means Life
and very aptly does she have the Zest to go 100 miles an hour.





The blinds reflected on this wall hanging above






THE RANDOM: Love to look at dizzying heights at Zion (Nat. Park, Utah),
or hear the sound of the ocean and feel the breeze of the wind (beach So. Cal.)









THE FUN: Love all the vineyards around us in Amador County. A very special atmosphere – just to drive around and see the sights, making me more aware of the seasons… and that our food does not only come from stores (haha – that’s a reminiscing thought of a city dweller).





Agapanthus against the fence I could see from my kitchen in the (previously owned) condo. The landscaping was nice… and my bathrooms were decadent …
If it was not on the street side, close to a mall and some other things, we may not have moved after five years.
Now I enjoy hearing the wind instead of traffic,
a view of trees and sky from every window,
and a sunset on most days.
So thankful for the beauty and peace around me,
to have great adult children and their families,
and still able to travel to the ocean and other parts
of California  and the other end of the globe.

  7. Hallo Jeanette,
    ik hoop dat ik nu wel kan reageren. Ik meot wel al je tekst soms op een vertaalmachine zetten want mijn engels is niet al te best hihi…. Jij kan mooi weer Nederlands gaan leren als ik mijn reactie in het Nederlands neerzet.
    Prachtige foto’s en ook de foto met je familie gezamelijk.

    Groetjes, Helma

    Hi Jeanette,
    I hope I can now respond. I’ll put all meot sometimes you text a translator because my English is not too good lol …. You can go to learn Dutch nice weather when I drop my reaction in Dutch.
    Beautiful pictures and the photo with your family together.

    Greetings, Helma


  8. Hi Jesh. I coulD not get the click title thing to work on your latest post . And I loved the post. I’m not a creative person at all, but I abandon ideas for blogposts often. I loved the way you remembered the projects and photos and put them together. Well done! And your darling grandaughter … I think she has abandoned her broccoli. ;)))!
